This page lists things to configure accessibility options, but they are 
only for Gnome/Ubuntu Unity
It may list some things that you can use for the time being until 
someone here can help you more (or if you happen to find it first)
Lubuntu uses LXDE and OpenBox (these two terms may help in searching)
The LXDE or openbox irc channels might be a better place to ask this 
question, as some of their developers may hang out there (and they would 
surely know)

We will try to help in any way we can.
